Interested customers must contact Marblehead directly to apply and confirm incentive availability before starting any projects. This incentive may change or be canceled at any time.
Marblehead Municipal Light Department offers eligible customers a rebate for solar photovoltaics (PV) installations. The eligibility criteria and incentive were designed to mirror the eligibility and incentives offered under the state's Commonwealth Solar rebate program and changes when the Commonwealth Solar II program changes.* Marblehead Municipal Light Department is not required under law to contribute to the Massachusetts Renewable Energy Trust (Trust), and therefore its customers are not eligible to receive rebates through the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center programs. Marblehead accepts proposals from its customers who are interested in a solar rebate. Program availability is subject to change and/or cancellation without warning.
- The Commonwealth Solar II is administered by the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center.
